Looks solid.

Not sure about the back end, but the front and sides are... very, very enticing and fluid.

Good choice to get Jay Leno... he is a super car collector, and famous.

can't wait to see it soon on Vancouver roads.

I know Lotus owns that track but does Mclaren also test on that site? (both in Surrey England)

your post made me think that Mclaren's test driver might be the current Stig. since he's already been testing cars on that track for so several years, Top Gear might have hired him after Ben Collins.

New stuff on the McLaren P1, it's just gone around the Nurburgring in...... under 7 minutes. McLaren won't actually say what time it did and i'm curious to find out which is faster, the P1 or the 918 Spyder

Unconfirmed random journalism: McLaren P1 laps Nurburgring in 6:47 - report [video]

Who knows what the time will be. Hopefully close to that.

Read something about the kers system not holding enough charge for the full length of the track as it only regenerates from engine braking, not braking, like the Porsche.

Will wait for official announcements.

The P1 is beginning to grow on me... a lot.

It's carbon fiber monocoque chassis is shaped in a very alluring way, not too aggressive, and not too soft.

It's alien looking and unique in a very good way.

Who do they choose to put in these "record" laps at the Nurbugring? Would Ferrari or McLaren pick a driver from their F1 team?

If not, why don't they? As F1 drivers are the pinnacle of motorsports.

oh well too bad for them I bet R36 GT-R will smoke the shit outta McLaren P1.

I wouldn't be surprised C7 ZR-1 did too. (C7 Z06 is already confirmed) Chevrolet to debut Corvette Stingray Z06 at Detroit Auto Show - latimes.com

Of course the R36 would smoke the p1. Nissan makes the best supercars. Period. Stock GTR is faster than boogady vayrawn. I heard the R36 can do 0-3000kph faster than a boogady can from 0-100kph. It's gonna come with a quad turbo I4 with VTEC to give it great fuel efficiency as well. Also I heard it will come with 6 wheels, 4 in the front to make it grip more. And have active fans that blow air up the asshole of the driver. The ATTESA will be renamed ANUS which stands for All-Nissan-Ultracentrifugation-Supercar. Best thing ever. And also I heard the Nismo version will come with active aero developed in partnership with NASA. cool shit bro.
